Three layer Tag

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.  So pleased you stopped by.
I haven't been doing a lot of crafting lately.  Apart from the fact that my computer crashed, too many other things are getting in the way.  Still get to manage it once in a while though .. (I would go nuts otherwise he! he!)  so I'm here to share a Tag I made.

I watched a video by Anna Rogalska a few weeks ago and totally loved the Tag she made so I simply had to try the process for myself.  If you don't know Anna, and if you love Mixed Media, her work is simply awesome and you should go over and take a look .. HERE is the link.

So, I basically followed the process on the video and here is the result.

 The papers I've used are from the 'Forgotten Meadows Collection' which were designed by Kerry-Jean Watson and are available in digital format from her Etsy Shop and are also available from Megs Garden in digital and printed format.  I have wanted to try the colour combination of purple and peacock blue  for a while now and these papers are perfect as a background for these colours.

One of the reasons I loved Anna's Tag so much is the three layers of papers she uses as the base.  Such a simple thing but it looks so much more effective than just the two layers.  I used a thin piece of cardboard in between the layers to get a bit of dimension.  Made a small label with the 'Dream' word from the 'Butterfly Book Kit' (also available from Megs Garden)  I simply mounted it on a small piece of left-over chipboard and inked the edges with 'Gathered Twigs' Distress Ink.

This lovely fabric bloom is the 'White Heirloom' flower (once again, available from Megs Garden) which, as the name implies, was white originally.  I simply sprayed it with some watered down acrylic paint to get the colour I wanted. 

  The quote is from Kaisercraft and the resin frame is from Prima.

The rose was sprayed with the same paint as the fabric bloom and the smaller flowers were sprayed with watered down 'Broken China' Distress Ink.  You can see some gauze and some stamen clusters tucked in among the blooms.

Also tucked in some pieces of lace and die cut leaves.  The clock is a printable from the net which I mounted on some chipboard.  The stamps I've used in the background are  'Arty' and 'Script',  both from Kaisercraft. 

Once everything was assembled I added some micro beads and swiped it all with a bit of gesso. Mine is quite different from Anna's, she added a bit more 'stuff' but I am really happy with how this turned out.

Thanks for dropping by and for leaving me some love, I really appreciate it.
Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day.
Take care and God Bless.
